Updated: The Mayfly opened on Sept. 28.
Signage went up over the weekend for the next bar for 269 E. Houston St. — the Mayfly.
EVG contributor Stacie Joy took these shots of the in-progress interior ... the fall of 2019. (There was previously an April 2020 opening date, though the pandemic put all that on hold.)

The space on the southeast corner of Houston and Suffolk has seen its share of bars come and go through the years. It has sat empty since Suffolk Arms shuttered in 2018 after two-plus years.
Before Suffolk Arms, we had the Local 269, which never reopened after a flood wiped out the live music venue's equipment in the fall of 2012. Other recent tenants included Meow Mix and Vasmay Lounge.
